THE NOVA SCOTIAN WEDDING

The Sergeant and the WO
to the chapel they did go
which one of them will have to bend
and take it up the old rear end?

They will pray upon the bible;
If they get Aids which one is liable?
Their single days are at an end
did I mention both are men?

Author’s Note: Okay! Okay! Call me old-fashioned and/or politically incorrect – but I remember the words of my mean old CSM Kenrod “The Rod” McLeod: “Soldiers in my company do not have to wear their helmets over their bums in the slit trench or bunker – it is a military offence to suck penis (not the word he used) and sticking your penis in a soldier’s bum is unsanitary not to mention buggery. It is also a military offence and against the law of God.”

I guess they have updated the offence list with different rules for different fools? Thank God that Padre took the cross off of his hat badge! He is a disgrace setting up this attention getting sham – there is something queer about the CBC too

Why have the Canadian Forces gone downhill? The CBC article below shows the partial answer. During the next war our NCOs will bitch slap the enemy with their lace gloves, whilst the fighting troops will wear Kevlar jockstraps over their rear ends to ward off the attentions of their Sergeants and Warrant Officers.

AIRBASE HOSTS 1st MILITARY GAY WEDDING

Two men were married in the chapel at Nova Scotia’s Greenwood airbase in May, in what’s being called the Canadian military’s first gay wedding.

INDEPTH: Same-Sex Rights

Lt.-Cmdr. David Greenwood, the base’s head chaplain, said a sergeant and a warrant officer were married May 3 in front of about 45 guests.

“This couple had been waiting a very long, long time,” said Greenwood, declining to give their names because he hadn’t asked for permission.

In September, the Nova Scotia Supreme Court ruled that banning same-sex marriages is unconstitutional, effectively changing the definition of marriage in the province to “the lawful union of two persons to the exclusion of all others.”

The military has said it’s willing to host gay weddings in jurisdictions where it’s legal.

A low-key marriage ceremony

Greenwood, an Anglican, did not perform the marriage but he did make the arrangements
for the service while a United Church minister from nearby Wolfville performed the vows. “I looked after the co-ordination in accordance with our military policy of receiving the couple with dignity and respect,” said Greenwood.

“I was there to preach and welcome the community on behalf of the base chaplaincy.”

While most Anglican dioceses in Canada do not perform same-sex marriages, the Canadian church has postponed its official decision until 2007. Greenwood said the ceremony was relaxed and low-key, and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight when the couple signed the marriage documents.

Greenwood said he has been told that a second same-sex marriage may be in the works
this year, at CFB Valcartier in Quebec.

Same-sex marriage legal in 7 provinces, 1 territory

In 2004, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that Ottawa has exclusive jurisdiction to
decide who has the right to get married in this country, but that religious groups are not
obliged to perform unions against their beliefs.

Federal politicians are now considering a same-sex marriage bill.

Currently, same-sex marriages performed in seven provinces and one territory are legal and must be recognized. Same-sex marriages are not performed in Alberta, New Brunswick, P.E.I., Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, but the Nunavut government will recognize same sex marriages performed elsewhere.
